The image of the future is defined in the article as a dynamic product of consciousness that consists of the individual ideas about the possible future processes and events. The results of the correlation study of a sample of young people (aged 16-17) are presented. The conclusion is made that the formation of the image of the future is only possible under the conditions of a well formed self-consciousness.

Keywords: image of the future, self-consciousness of a person, reality.
